One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is the latest anime arena fighter coming out and after some pre-release hype, we finally know when the game is coming out. After months of various trailers, the One Punch Man video game will be coming to the West on February 28, while it also comes out a day earlier on February 27.
The news comes not long after A Hero Nobody Knows had its first pre-release beta, which got a mixed reaction from those that played it. Still, fans are pretty excited about the single-player mode that has us creating our own superhero that teams up with Saitama and his pals. It’s also worth noting that the trailer which revealed the release date also reveals a number of brand-new characters.
Metal Knight, Stinger, and Melzegard were shown off in the trailer and fans of the dub will be happy to know that this game will actually have English voice acting. This has become more uncertain with anime games since My Hero: One’s Justice didn’t have an English dub in it, despite its anime having one.
Another thing fans will appreciate is Dream Saitama, a version of the character who can actually fight the other characters fairly. This is keeping with the show and manga’s canon since his main goal is to fight someone who won’t get killed by one of his punches. Since we have seen him fight people regularly in his dreams, we’ll have to settle for this version of the character.
Here’s hoping one of his alternate costumes is his superhero attire.
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows comes out on February 28 for PS4 and Xbox One.
